It looks like 17-year-old Kylie Jenner may have had a breast enhancement procedure between the time she shot her most recent Cosmo cover (left) and the time she posted this Instagram photo (right).
“It certainly appears that she’s had breast augmentation surgery.”, says New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia, who specializes in breast implants.
Dr. Vendemia adds, “Kylie has definitely added some fullness and cleavage since her shoot for Cosmopolitan, and if it is surgical, it looks like a job fairly well done. If she did in fact have breast augmentation surgery, it would be interesting to know whether or not she has saline or silicone breast implants because of her age. The FDA’s recommendation is that women considering cosmetic breast augmentation surgery should be 22 years old before receiving silicone implants, so I would be curious to know which implants Kylie chose. Her implants appear to have settled, which happens for most women around the 2-3 month mark after surgery, and they also appear to be a reasonable size choice for her frame. And regarding the size, I think they look a little larger than they actually are because this is a selfie. When any camera lens is less than 6 feet from the subject, it is possible that the portions of the image that are closest to the lens can be magnified, and I think that’s happening a bit here because Kylie is probably holding her own camera. In theory, a great pushup bra and a camera positioned close enough to her chest could account for the extra size and cleavage, so anything is possible here. It’s very difficult to say whether or not she had surgery without seeing some follow up photos taken at a reasonable distance.”

It seems that the answer to this question is, “a little from column A, and a little from column B”.
Bloggers everywhere are saying that Renee doesn’t look like herself, and I have to agree. It’s pretty impressive how much she does not look like herself, which is not always a sure fire sign of plastic surgery, but it certainly can be, and in her case I think it is… at least in part.

A recent photo from RadarOnline has restarted a long-standing buzz about Nicole Kidman’s breast augmentation surgery, which we originally wrote about here four years ago when it appeared that she had her implants revised or removed because they looked too fake.
This time around, they look a little better, but I still think there are a few ways that this result could have been better, especially form someone like Nicole who will always be in the spotlight, and guaranteed to generate a paparazzi photo frenzy everywhere she goes: Continue reading →
Red carpets are always studded with fashionable celebs and actual studs, the heavy kind…
While there’s no doubt that big beautiful bling is in for high class events, it might be a good idea to keep the heavy earrings in your jewelry box for ordinary days. Wearing heavy earrings too frequently can lead to a severe weakening of the earlobe, and in some cases that weakening can lead to the earring tearing completely through the lobe. This can also happen if your earring gets caught on something accidentally and tears through, but it’s actually more common as a gradual process from wearing heavy earrings too often.
The good news is that this is a fixable problem. Earlobe repair surgery is a fairly simple procedure that can be done under local anesthesia in the office. The procedure takes about an hour for a single side, and about 90 minutes for both sides. There are usually a few very tiny sutures that are removed after the 5th or 6th day, and the lobe will be a little tender for a day or two, but other than that there is essentially no real downtime.

There are only a handful of people who can be recognized by their silhouettes alone.
Michael Jordan’s silhouette features his high flying slam dunk pose. Michael Jackson’s silhouette brings his famous moonwalk to life. Slash from GNR rocks out with his top hat and signature leaning back guitar stance. And even though he’s not a rock star or professional athlete, Barak Obama belongs to this small group of silhouette celebrities… all thanks to hit ears!
Of course we would never expect the President to change anything about his stately ears now that they are world famous, but if he ever wanted to, he would be the perfect candidate for otoplasty, or ear pinning, surgery.
Allyn Rose, a 24 year old contestant in the upcoming Miss America Pageant, has decided to have a prophylactic (preventative) double mastectomy in order to prevent the disease that is in her genes and killed her mother.
Allyn’s mom was only 27 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and was also found to be a carrier of the BRCA gene that drastically increases Allyn’s chance of the disease. Many other patients with the breast cancer gene have chosen to have their breast tissue removed preventatively, and then have a single-stage breast reconstruction at the same time as their mastectomy so that they can continue living a normal life without the worry of developing breast cancer.
While some think this is an extreme measure, others feel that it’s very subjective decision that each individual woman with the breast cancer gene has to make.
New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia says, “It’s a huge decision for a woman to decide to have a prophylactic mastectomy in the face of the BRCA gene, but it’s also a huge decision not to have the surgery. Breast cancer is one of the most deadly cancers for women, so I can certainly understand why a woman in a high risk situation may opt for peace of mind rather than constantly worrying about developing the disease. That level of worry can be quite emotionally draining after a while and definitely shouldn’t be taken for granted. That being said, surgery is a very big step that is certainly not without its own set of considerations and consequences. It’s an entirely subjective decision, but I’m happy that we have great techniques and technology to help any of these women regardless of which strategy they decide is right for them.”
In regards to Allyn’s comment that she is “choosing life over beauty”, Dr. Vendemia said, “I don’t think Allyn is 100% accurate with this statement. I’ve seen so many beautiful breast reconstructions in my own hands and in the hands of my colleagues that I don’t necessarily think anyone, including Allyn, is losing their beauty after surgery. In fact, women who are doing this preventatively have the most beautiful and most natural reconstructions because they do not have to go through chemotherapy and radiation which can significantly affect the results of reconstructive procedures in women who already have breast cancer.”
What do you think about this situation? If you had the breast cancer gene, would you rather have the surgery and peace of mind? Or would you rather wait and see if the gene actually causes a problem first and risk actually getting breast cancer?
Not because Mitt made him wish he had a teleprompter, but because his smile lines were out of control! He’s definitely gotten older during his first term, and why wouldn’t he? He inherited one of the biggest messes of any US president, and I’m sure he’s been working nonstop since he took office four years ago.
In any case, I don’t normally feel this strongly about plastic surgery procedures, even though I am a plastic surgeon, but I wanted to put some Juvederm in his smile lines so badly last night! I couldn’t help myself 🙂
